I made a HUGE pitcher of this ICED yesterday and forgot to log. I really think the way to go with this one is ICED. It makes more sense than having it hot. Yesterday I really remember the pear taste popping out.
Yeah…I don’t think I will drink this hot anymore…ICED really IS the way to go! Very nice…ICED!
Backlogging…ICED…sending the rest to friends…
Backlogging…ICED…see previous reviews…
Hot Review – if you are looking for a COLD/Iced Review…click on my other tasting notes.
I LOVE how you can see chunks of pear in this! Another observation is that there really isn’t that much Black Currant Flavored in there but that is by design. Even tho I blended a Black Flavored, an herbal, and a white together I think the White Tea is the more prominent and that is what I was hoping for.
The coloring is that of an oolong, really…at least that is what comes to mind first.
The first and 2nd infusions are quite different but both fun and yummy. The first one was more fruity but not tart…thirst quenching and relaxing. The 2nd infusion is more earthy or leafy with hints of cherry and pear and maybe hidden currant like tones. It’s also a comfort. And I really like the way the label came out on this one! :)
Finished up my large pitcher of ICED – ahhhhh
ICED Review – I’m liking this iced (as well as hot which I will review soon, hot, but I am thinking Iced is pretty awesome – if I do say so myself)
Fruity but not tart, sweet and thirst quenching. Fun and colorful dry leaf…medium white color tint to the tea once brewed. If you like White teas – flavored and if you are afraid of fruity herbals because you think they are too tart…try this…you might just like it! It’s a happy medium.
I hand picked which leaves I steeped today and it was a little bit more tart than I like…will stick to the ‘blend’ from now on…still a good cup tho!
The more I drink this the more I like it. I steeped for about 2-3 minutes today and it’s great. I still have to send a sample of this to my friend in Norway…I think she would be proud! :P
